A sense of history and future. The ability to analyze and create. These are things completely or at least partially unique to being human. Who first tried all those mushrooms, and when was it we decided which ones were safe to eat? Who figured out you should cook them with space in between,… MORE

Those who know me well, know that I have a love affair with beer. Low class? Please! Kings and pharaohs drank beer. When traveling, if you're not sure about the water, beer is the recommended alternative. Depending on who you talk to, in Germany they say three, six or seven beers make a meal.… MORE

Every story has a beginning. Every life a birth. Every death a story. And thus life revolves and evolves. Evolution can be defined as “a gradual process in which something changes [to become] different and usually more complex or better” Professionally I am in no position to judge the MORE

About Me
I started out cooking from a box or a can because I thought it was quick. It didn't take me long to learn that home cook foods can also be quick and are much healthier. Recently I've turned to organic foods for an even better tasting twist.
My favorite things to cook
The more variety the better. I love to experiment with foods from all different cultures. Because my husband is from Germany, German and Turkish foods are my specialties, with Greek and Italian tying for third.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Celebrating holidays with family is extra special. I enjoy hosting & then inviting everyone to provide a recipe to include in the meals. Once younger family members age & have new recipes of their own, I include them.
My cooking triumphs
I've created a few of my own recipes and my family and guests rave when I make them. They are my easiest recipes, yet everyone loves them.
My cooking tragedies
Upon moving to Germany I managed to destroy several attempts at banana bread before finally learning how to translate US measurements for metric.
